What is Singularity University?

Our mission is to educate, inspire and empower leaders to apply exponential technologies to address humanity’s grand challenges.

Here's an ABC news article from May, 2013

Elite university aims to solve world's problems

I admit, those headlines are mild compared to other sources .. like Huffington Post. If I want to immediately put my mind into the septic tank of Humanity, I know just where to go.

I'm on my own septic but you could probably find sensational head lines there.
At one time they contributed to the lines on my face but I happened upon my own composition and have a clear brow.

Clarity is the prerequisite to all things, yeah?

Singularity University is going to grow leather in a laboratory. That doesn't help the people of the world too much.


This video is amazing. It makes me think .. this is the sort of stuff that something like Singularity University will "address" and solve ...


"]Welcome to the Anthropocene - YouTube


It's one thing to want to solve the matter of 1 billion people in malnutrition, hunger and starvation, but what is the solution for massive domestic violence issues? What is the solution to poverty (which drives DV)? What is the solution to employment issues (business and occupation, everybody needs to have something to do to keep them busy and occupied) when there are no opportunities?


I see two worlds, not one. I see development and growth of technologies, but nothing for the worsening matters of the suffering human condition.


I don't suffer because of a lack of leather or illuminated plants.

Concerning the incontertibly good idea that a Singularity University is, will it hold online courses? where will it be based? is this a reaction the singularity theory; of mind's learning about itself and the environment around it and technological adeptivity will call in the new eg; = Singularity http://guardianlv.co...say-scientists/
